About Noble Newman

Stories, as they are for so many people, are an essential part of Noble Newman’s life. An avid reader through all of his years, with a novel always by his side and an audio book regularly playing in his car, he now writes stories of his own, and is trying his hand at getting his material published.

Some of the most wonderful things about great books, whether you’re reading them or writing them, are that they allow you to explore new worlds that you would not normally be able to experience in real life, and that they reflect the actual world, showing it in ways that provide insights one could miss or that could be cloudy in the deluge of information and experience of one’s day to day. If you can add some humor and fantasy to stories, they are likely to resonate even more deeply. Such stories can also serve the valuable purpose of encouraging kids to read.

With an appreciation for the above-mentioned humor, fantasy, and creatively constructed worlds, and a long standing and innate interest in technology and technological advancement, it’s no surprise that Noble Newman is a huge fan of the fantasy and science fiction genres. Some of his favorite books include Ender’s Game, Eragon, and Peter and the Starcatchers, and the Harry Potter, Lightning Thief, and Ranger’s Apprentice series. In short, he appreciates what everyone does in good literature – books that fill the reader with a sense of wonder and joy.

While Noble embraces innovation and new technology, sometimes the old fashioned way of doing things is best, which is why currently he is attempting to go through literary agents in order to get his material seen and published. He plans to begin his professional writing career with children’s books.
